Balsamic Steak with Red Grape Relish

I love how steak marinated in balsamic vinaigrette goes so well with a relish of red grapes and blue cheese. Everything looks gorgeous on the plate. —Naylet LaRochelle, Miami, Florida

    This is such a wonderful and simple recipe. It looks so pretty on the plate, but takes only about 10-15 minutes to prep. I love the sweetness of the grapes with the tang of the blue cheese. My only note would be that the recipe calls for A LOT of grapes for the relish, which I don't think is necessary. This makes SO much relish for a 1 pound piece of steak. I only use 1 1/2 cup of grapes and just add some cheese and green onion to my liking. Regardless, we make this all the time. My husband LOVES it.
